Default Soyuz Nozzles

I needed an easy way to make 24 booster nozzles for my 29mm powered Soyuz TMA-3.
Using wire nuts I found on my bench, I drilled holes in the booster end caps and inserted them until they bottomed out against the flange. On the reverse side I used my soldering iron to melt them into place. They look very convincing and should prove to be durable enough to survive hard landings.

Comrade!

That's really cool. But that's gotta be pretty weighty. It'd work fine on a long nose moment Soyuz but I'd hate to try that on a short nose Sputnik. You'd need a solid tungsten nose.

Please post a picture of your R-7. We just don't see that may built and yours sounds like a big one.

You can see a photo in a thread I started about half way down page 4 in the projects section.
